Analysts identify key hardware, partnership and security trends from Dell Technologies World

Storage software innovations announced by Dell Technologies Inc. on Monday solidified the company’s position in creating new levels of automation, security and multicloud capabilities for the enterprise.

A key part of Dell’s innovation revolves around hardware and its ecosystem of partners to deliver new solutions.

“Dell is still doing a lot of very hard work optimizing systems on the back-end,” said David Nicholson (pictured, left), industry analyst for theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live-streaming studio. “Whether it’s retail or security advancements, they’re all driven by highly optimized and tuned hardware. The partnerships Dell has behind the scenes are a big part of that. »

Nicholson spoke with fellow industry analysts John Furrier (pictured, center) and Lisa Martin (pictured, right) during today’s kickoff segment for theCUBE’s coverage of Dell Technologies World. They analyzed Dell’s recent announcements and important trends discussed at the Las Vegas conference. (*Disclosure below.)

Partnership with Snowflake

Partnerships continue to play an important role for Dell and the technology industry as a whole. The company announced a partnership with cloud data warehouse giant Snowflake Inc. to connect data from its on-premises storage offerings with the Snowflake Data Cloud.

“The partner’s story is more important than ever; you see more ecosystems developing,” Furrier noted. “You can create loose parts of solutions, and the glue layers in large-scale software are now available. It is now easier for customers to purchase point solutions and assemble them.

Dell’s significant number of software enhancements are also aimed at increasing security and control for organizations looking for an IT infrastructure that delivers a cloud-like experience no matter where the data resides. The increased importance of data to most businesses has increased the need for cybersecurity protection.

“I was reading some stats recently that there’s an attack every 11 seconds,” Martin said. “It’s not a question of if we’re going to be affected, it’s when. Safety is that top-notch conversation at the board level.”
